Best rock song of all time?

Here is the view of a fellow blogger:
And the number one classic rock song of all time is …
Born to Run, Bruce Springsteen – Bruce scored big with the title track to his third album, released in 1975. This song is almost beyond words, as Bruce is such a master lyricist that he sums them all up for us. Nothing we can say or think is original, because Bruce already sang it. This song is perfect – partly because Bruce and the band spent six months working on this song to make it so – in every way: its lyrics, which speak of escaping a town that rips the bones from your back and the highway jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive, all the great poets who have ever existed would be jealous of such mastery of words. The music, so powerful and so full of raw energy, it is almost scary. Bruce has probably played thousands of shows after this song’s release, and has played it at every one, pouring his heart into every chord and verse. Never have I heard a crowd explode like I did at the Sprint Center two-and-a-half years ago when its opening riff was played, and it is something I hope to experience again. No song is better than “Born to Run.”
